Justify was the key player on a horse racing 'dream team' -- the best trainer of all time (confirmed Saturday) in Bob Baffert, a Hall of Fame jockey in Mike Smith who made all the right moves, and a thoroughbred whose name will rise above them all.
Justify won the 150th Belmont Stakes, becoming the 13th horse to win the Triple Crown, and just the second to win it as an undefeated horse.
